I know that there is a big Hilton thread, we are out numbered by Dreams girls, and there was a Sheraton thread started a while back too. So I though, why the heck not.. Let's start the official RIU thread. I've included the links to many other RIU conversations, please feel free to add others if you find them. I thought maybe it might be easier for the new RIU brides to have all the info at their fingertips. Please remember, not everybody's experience will be the same, and of course prices are subject to change without notice.

There is hope thread: (lots of WC comments, concerns, ideas)

Hope this helps us all, and the future brides too... Happy Planning Girls!

      Thanks Stephanie! You've definately lessened my anxiety when it comes to planning my wedding. I'll keep this thread in mind if I can think of anything to share for the RIU brides.

          Hi girls! I know most of you are getting married in Cabo. I have been there...it is just beautiful! We are getting married in Cancun (RIU Palace Las Americas or RPLA) since we wanted to go somewhere we have never been.

          I am looking forward to sharing info and experiences! I will try to figure out how to upload some pictures that were given to me by the WC.

          I saw those pics! I want a fire pit now!!! How cool! I don't even know if that is an option for Cancun! Wow!

              Even though I'm not a RIU Bride, Stephanie that was so nice of you to organize the thread for the other RIU Brides. And though I am not getting married there to all the new girls feel free to ask me anything (since I am getting married in Cabo as well) and I will help as best I can. Happy planning everyone!

                This is awesome - even though i can't open everything. I am between dreams and riu but my fiance is dead set on Riu. He likes the proximity to the night life and the additional on site options of things to do. It looks like I will be a Riu bride as well. :)

                  So we finally make our own thread and now I realize that we aren't using it much at all. I thought I would post this for more of a bump than anything else.

                  I emailed Adriana to see what to reserve our beach reception and see what the price is to use a LCD projector and screen for the evening so we could show a short picture presentation of DH and I while we were growing up and some pics together etc. Well guess the price they quoted me? no higher! Nope, I'm sure it's still higher......well it was $650 dollars!!!! Now to me that sounds totally ridiculous. Was anyone else planning on doing this?
